Showing off school colors

Tags

, ,

Students are back in school and ready to show off some school spirit.  A great display of showing your pride is wearing school colors.  In recognition of National College Colors Day today, the Sisters In Stamping are letting our projects wear all the pride by finding inspiration in college school color combinations.

Fall / Color combo: orange and brown / Paper Pumpkin August 2016 kit / Stampin' Up! / StampinBlessings.wordpress.com

While not my Alma-mater, I chose to use colors from Bowling Green State University.  Their colors are great for the fall (brown and orange), and I needed a fall Hello card for a friend – win/win!

This note was actually created from August’s Paper Pumpkin kit.  Y’all know how much I love my Paper Pumpkin kits every month, and this was no exception.

Fall / Color combo: orange and brown / Paper Pumpkin August 2016 kit / Stampin' Up! / StampinBlessings.wordpress.com

The Hello sentiment was stamped on the designer cardstock and then layered over stamped naturals cardstock with some dimentionals.

I love these little wood embellishments – they are a nice touch tied to the corner of the cardstock with some bakers twine.

Dog Days

Tags

, , , ,

Welcome back all!  Summer is just about over and my kiddos have finally headed back to school.  These last two weeks have been a blur, but I’m happy to be stamping and blogging again!

Today the Sisters In Stamping are celebrating National Dog Day.  We are creating projects with our favorite pups in mind.  My project features the dog from The Wilderness Awaits stamp set.  This is a perfect set for the men in your life, or any animal lover!

This stamp set is perfect for the watercolor technique.  Stamp image(s) with StazOn ink, then use Aqua Painters to add color first to the sky, working down to the ground last. The colors used here are Pool Party for the sky, Cajun Craze and Early Esspresso for the dog, and Garden Green for the ground. It is important to allow the paper to dry between each color and layer, but you can speed up this process by using your Heat Tool.

Texture elements added to this card are twine pieces pulled from Burlap Ribbon and distressed Pool Party Cardstock. The distressed cardstock done here is fairly simplistic – just tearing the top layers of paper to give it a rough look.

Getting ready for Christmas

, , , , , , ,

I like to think I really plan well for things like birthday parties, Christmas, and other great events.  But, truthfully life gets in the way and I’m throwing things together last minute.  I have a secrete weapon though…the Big Shot!

The Big Shot comes in handy when I need super cute favors, or a bunch of cards.  Adding detailed elements and texture is a cinch!  To show you some of the great things you can accomplish with the Big Shot, the Sisters in Stamping decided to share their ideas for this Fabulous Friday.

Big Shot Christmas Favor / Advent / Curvy Keepsake Thinlits / Wondrous Wreath stamp set / Wonderful Wreath Framelits / Stampin' Up! /StampinBlessings.wordpress.com

In the spirit of getting ready for Christmas early, I decided to make this festive box using the Curvy Keepsakes Thinlits Dies.  These little boxes can be used as party favors or an advent calendar.  Fill them with candy or trinkets and watch the excitement in your recipients’ eyes!

Big Shot Christmas Favor / Advent / Curvy Keepsake Thinlits / Wondrous Wreath stamp set / Wonderful Wreath Framelits / Stampin' Up! /StampinBlessings.wordpress.com

The wreath was stamped from the Wondrous Wreath stamp set in Certainly Celery, Cucumber Crush, and Real Red.  It was then cut out using the Wonderful Wreath Framelits Dies using the Big Shot.  The “Joy” sentiment is from the same framelits set and cut from gold glimmer paper – so elegant!

Big Shot Christmas Favor / Advent / Curvy Keepsake Thinlits / Wondrous Wreath stamp set / Wonderful Wreath Framelits / Stampin' Up! /StampinBlessings.wordpress.com

In this photo you can see I simply used a bit of metallic thread to tie the box closed and attach the “Joy” to the front of the wreath.  The only adhesive used on this entire project is to attach the two bottom pieces of the box together.

Here are the primary products you will need to recreate this project for yourself:

Sale Price: $26.00

Wonderful Wreath Framelits Dies

Blessed by Friendships

You don’t always need a reason to send a card to a friend.  Sometimes, you just need to let them know they are fun to be around.  Nothing makes a friend feel more appreciated than when you send them a little love for no reason at all.

This friendship card features the Fox Builder Punch with the A Little Foxy DSP and Cardstock.  I didn’t stay strictly with the Foxy Friends bundle.  Instead I mixed and matched a couple other stamp sets to get the feel I wanted.

Friendship card / A Little Foxy DSP / Fox Builder Punch / Better Than Email stamp set / In the Meadow stamp set / Clean & Simple card designs / Stampin' Up! / StampinBlessings.wordpress.com

I used the builder punch to create a cute little cat.  Her face was enhanced with an embossed look by using the Fine-Tip Glue Pen, where the adhesive has a glossy appearance when dry.

Friendship card / A Little Foxy DSP / Fox Builder Punch / Better Than Email stamp set / In the Meadow stamp set / Clean & Simple card designs / Stampin' Up! / StampinBlessings.wordpress.com

The sentiment was taken from the In The Meadow stamp set.  I then took the yarn image from the Better Than Email stamp set.  This was achieved by using my Stampin’ Write Markers to color only the portion of the image I wanted to capture.

To add to the feeling that this little kitty is playing with yarn, I took the Whisper White Thick Baker’s Twine and tied a bit onto the left side of my DSP layer.  Does she look ready to play?
